The kingdom used to be a place of paved roads and well-filled coffers, with joy and the good life all around. But the old king went the way of all flesh years ago, and now the kingdom is derelict, a land ofwickedness and ruin. But a young prince and his sister begin to see what must be done, and-if they can-to restore what has been lost. For a hundred years has been one of Greece's best-loved stories. This playful, wise fable is enchanting for readers of any age, as meaningful and moving now as when it was first written.
